Description

For us who use multiple daily builds, easiest way to see when build originated is Time at About dialog.
I see it not there at @39 Windows (that's now back after some time).

It would be nice to have time also in About of bibisect repos. When I run master, how do I know when it was built?

Now when we have just 2 Win daily builds (which is enough), Win-x86_64@tb77-TDF/ builds should be named clear and similar to @39: with time in name (@39: master~2019-11-02_00.08.13_LibreOfficeDev_6.4.0.0.alpha1_Win_x86.msi).
It's important when one is using "Separate Install GUI" to see if build is updated, should it be downloaded. That's not the same as time in About dialog, this is in addition.
Now @77 is just "LibreOfficeDev_6.4.0.0.alpha0_Win_x64.msi".

Another issue with @77 is that Current doesn't point to the latest. Today 07.11. Current is from 16.10. and latest is 07.11. So just by looking at Current one might think build is not accurate.

Xisco, what are your thoughts on this? Something for ESC or team call?

Gentle ping - can you give a quick feedback, Xisco?

Time and date is displayed in dbg builds from https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@86-TDF-dbg/current/ ( see screenshot )
However, the build id is not there. To me, and I think for QA/DEV people in general, it is more important to have the build id than the date and time. Some days, there are more than 50 commits submitted to master

If that is a demand by QA, can you raise that during the next ESC meeting and report back in this ticket?
